#2 of 646 Surprise! Mine Showed Up Today!
May 02, 2006 (9:14 pm)
My silver/titanium hybrid showed up today! The dealer didn't even know it was coming, but it was on the truck. I've been talking to my local dealer (Portland OR) since January. I was in the top three on the list. Silver/moonroof, no navigation, aftermarket leather. Paid MSRP. I wasn't expecting it until June or July. I got a call at work today, and I split as soon as I could. Drives great, very quiet, even in gas mode. Good acceleration, even up hills, better than I expected. It's in my driveway now. Amazed. The other sales people were all over it like vultures. Great buying experience for me.

As I asked in an earlier post, I'm looking for impessions of the trunk's usability. Photos would be great, or even trunk interior dimensions (LxWxD), etc.
Without the NAV package, what does the center console display look like? Any comments on the "blue rings" around the speedometer that change intensity based on current fuel economy? That's a bit under-described in the reviews.
Finally, do you have side-mounted turn signals? I saw what looked like signal indicators on the eBrochure for the TCH. Haven't seen anything like it in other pictures, though.
Anyway, thanks for letting me pick your brain!

That trunk picture was in post # 770 of this forum.

I saw that one already. I was looking for a few more angles and a better feel for how far into the trunk the battery extends. Also, I don't know if there is anything on the left-hand side of the trunk from the angle shown.
At this point, I'm really hoping some proud new owners will start posting impressions, pictures, etc. Thanks for the response nonetheless.

Congrats on the TCH. Since you're one of the only ones who has gotten the combination I'm thinking of, I have a few questions:
1. What does the center screen look like without the nav system (is it a similar appearance to the high-end models or more like the LE? Do you have a photo?)
2. Any problems with the aftermarket leather? Does it affect the warranty or airbags?
Thanks for the info.
